When my users are logged in.. (6 posts)

    Hi,

    I'm using WordPress as a private members website. I create my users accounts manually but when they are logged in I need them to change there password to something they can remember.

    The only way they can do this is by sending them too:
    http://www.mysite.com/wp-admin/index.php

    Which brings up the main 'Dashboard', here they can see EVERYTHING about my site i.e. how many posts, comments and categories, recent comments, incoming links and even news from the 'Wordpress development blog'.

    On the 'Profile' page:
    http://www.mysite.com/wp-admin/profile.php

    They can change all of there details (which is all I want the user to do).

    Is there anyway I can just show them a way to change the password without showing them all of my sites data and the latest wordpress news etc.. there is no need at all for them to know any of this info and I'm not sure why WordPress decided to include it all.

    Could someone please help me with this?

    Only thing I've came across is:
    http://www.sugarrae.com/wordpress/cyc/

    But I have a feeling this will only work with the old version.

    Would it be possible to edit the PHP file manually or is this going to mess it up for myself when I login as an admin?

    Thanks for this. I can't actually understand there instructions and I'm also worried this will affect the Dashboard when I log in...

    I've added:

    <style>

    #dashboard_incoming_links,
    #dashboard_plugins,
    #dashboard_secondary,
    #dashboard_primary,
    #contextual-help-link-wrap,
    #screen-options-link-wrap,
    #footer-left,
    .turbo-nag,
    .versions{display:none !important;}
    </style>

    In the <head> tag on admin-header.php and it has hidden some things which helps.

    I've also added:

    #dashboard_right_now,
    #dashboard_recent_comments,

    So now my 'Dashboard' page is completely blank so I have to link them to /wp-admin/profile.php and they can change things from there.

    Not perfect but it does the job.
